The Harley Davidson LiveWire when made its Global debut at CES 2019, it started a lot of question if its being coming to India? How would it ride ? Will Harley Davidson make India its Electric Priority ? and a lot more.. isn’t it ? But now keeping every question answered, Harley has decided to launch the LiveWire in India and we have the launch date.
The moment we got an invite for a launch event from Harley, we were in dilemma thinking which bike could it be. Wasting no time we saw the Blue Harley Shield with electric waves running asside which gave a very clear indication that this is it. The LiveWire will be live in India this August 27.
Now, talking about the bike Made from lightweight cast aluminum frame, the LiveWire is a good looking motorcycle. It retains the Harley Davidson look fused with their futuristic styling. There’s no V-Twin thumping beneath the tank, but a 15.5Kwh battery pack which gives the bike healthy amount of power and torque. It’s a permanent magnet electric motor which Harley Davidson calls Revelation Powertrain. The battery pack is located in the center helping in better center of gravity.
The range? Speed? Well, the motor is good for 255 Km city range, or 142 km of range with stop and go traffic and highway combined. As before the range is not very good. But the power is, 0-100 comes in just 3 seconds thanks to that instant torque provided by the electric motor. Harley-Davidson LiveWire Top speed is expected to be somewhere around 170-180 kmph.
0=This Harley comes loaded with electronics, more than you’ll expect from a Harley Davidson. It gets an Electronic Chassis Control (ECC) system. This system manages Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS) and Drag-Torque Slip Control System (DSCS) by modulating torque available at the rear wheel. The bike also gets a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU). Three riding modes including Sport, Road, Rain, Range, and custom modes.
Harley Davidson LiveWire price in India will be announced on the day of launch and we expect it to be very competitive as this electric burner will help Harley to gain market shares.
